Max Effort Corvette Z06 vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S – 200 MPH Street Hits

June 18th, 2024

These summer nights are heating up and that means it’s street racing season in the Dirty South (Mexico). These racers are in it to win it with their elite machines and their production hot rods are modified to push the envelope when it comes to speed and acceleration in roll racing action. Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it. It’s pure exhilaration.

We have a 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S running in the right lane. This is a rear-engine, all-wheel drive coupe equipped with a twin turbocharged flat 6 engine and an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 911 Turbo S is a masterful example of German craftsmanship that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.2-seconds and make 640hp. Car and Driver Magazine says the stock Turbo S can turn the standing quarter-mile in 10.7-seconds @ 137 mph. The Porsche featured in this clip has been modified with a full accoutrement of aftermarket bolt-ons, including exhaust downpipes (catless?), a methanol injection system and beefed-up intercoolers. It’s also burning MS109 race gas. Maximum output is estimated at 800whp in its current condition.

Not to be outdone, the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Z06 is a rear-wheel drive sports car equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission. Upgraded with a ported blower, an aftermarket blower lid, a high-performance camshaft and a Max Effort E85 tune, this predatory beast is capable of making over 800whp.

By the numbers, this should be a dynamite race.
